We have started working on an Android utility that gives you ability to configure your router more conveniently, while on the go.

Let us know how it works for you, and what you think about it.

Thanks for the app!

1st bug report as a result of brief overview:
1. Double IP Scan found in Tools menu, see attached screenshot.
2. Application is quite unstable. Freezes and closes unexpectedly even on main screen.

Tested on Samsung Galaxy Note (GT-N8000)

I installed the app. It starts. Typed the ip of my home router, also user and pass and when I click Connect it says 'Unknown Host' (after showing 'Connecting' for 1-2sec)
I tried again from home and it connects. It uses winbox protocol, port 8291. This port is accepted from wan side of the router.
What I noticed so far :

1. My phone disconnected from the wireless network for a second. At that point the app crashed.
2. I tried to start a script. I don't see any way to do that. I can click on the script and edit the name. I can click a 'Settings' button and I can delete it or set a comment. But don't see a way to run it.

Update on the connection problem : I added a log rule to see why is not connecting from wan. It starts with a connection to tcp port 7 (echo) and if this port is closed the 'Unknown Host' message appears. So in a firewall where I accept port 8291 from wan and drop everything else it doesn't work. I have to add a rule to accept port 7 in order to connect.

@normis thank u for publish this app ;)

I installed the app. It starts. Typed the public ip of my work router, also user and pass and when I click Connect it says 'Unknown Host' (after showing 'Connecting' for 1-2sec)

Any idea?

Is there any other way how to participate on testing without forcing me to agree Google privacy rules? I am not willing to agree with them. Why are you involving third company into relationship between mikrotik and your customers? Please, for example, provide the possibility to download the application from the user account pages on your website. Thank you very much.

This is great, thanks for working on this.

Definite feature request - Port Knocking before connection, possibly even multi-port-knock (I tend to go 2 or 3 different ports in specific order before opening IP for management) so when I'm out and about (mobile network with no fixed IP) I can log in securely without having VPN connected or management open to outside world.

Thanks

Thanks a lot. Does it use Google services? If it still does, it's useless for me to try on my BlackBerry or Jolla (and it would also not work on a Kindle).

Like it was said above, unknown host is because ping is blocked, not because domain name.

Like it was said above, unknown host is because ping is blocked, not because domain name.
But it is not using icmp echo, instead is using tcp echo.
firewall,info input: in:ether1-wan out:(none), src-mac 00:25:90:e5:xx:xx, proto TCP (SYN), 212.5.15x.xxx:63837->88.8x.3.x:7, len 60
Is this necessary ? Most firewalls, even the default configurations are setup in a way that connect attempts will be blocked.

Why it needs to ping first? Winbox does not need it. The port TCP/8291 is not enough for android application?

And maybe change the message to 'Connection Refused' or 'No connection to host'. This message is misleading.

The app runs on BlackBerry 10 and Jolla Sailfish. Nice. So it might run also on Kindle, but I don't have one to try.

I swiped around a bit on the Jolla, not modifying anything, and it looked stable.

Now, on my BlackBerry it crashes quickly. This is probably a general problem with Android apps in 10.3, I saw some people downgrading to 10.2 for different reasons. 10.3.2 still has not rolled out here, so I cannot tell you the current status for now.

When you release the final version, it takes 5 minutes to repackage for BlackBerry World once you have set up the Eclipse environment for this. Anybody can repackage an app from an apk for side loading, but only the owner can publish to the store (this was the way to sideload on BB10 before it became possible to just open an apk on the phone).

On the Jolla and Kindle you can also sideload just by opening an apk on the phone.

I am upgrading to Sailfish 1.1.6.27 . I had tried on 1.1.4.29 . I will tell you how it goes.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Android 5.0 - check
Samsung Galaxy S5, Android 5.0 - check
Samsung Galaxy Tab PRO 12.2 WiFi, Android 4.4.2 (grr!) - check - lots of wasted space

All the 5 devices above tested via Apple Airport Extreme Simultaneous Dual Band wireless and Mikrotik ethernet.

RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN with wireless disabled, RouterOS 6.30 with FastTrack enabled, LAN side.

The Tik App already proved useful with the Resources page.

The Profile page needs graphing like in the other interfaces to be able to see the whole activity at a glance. With the current interface you can only check one subsystem at a time really.

I reloaded the OS and restored my BlackBerry from backup, and now I don't get those crashes. Tik App came with the backup. Great!

So it looks like something was already messed up in my phone. Some other Android apps had started crashing on me before.

My BlackBerry seemed quite loaded with the OS update post processing, and the app crashed again. The phone was in general slow and laggy.

Not necessarily the CPU. This was at about 50%.
